THE FifBt Volume of this Work is now completed^ and an opinion may be 

formed ot a project, which was deemed at its announcement so beset by 
difficultiesy as to bold oot little hope of a saoceasful issue. Those difficulties 
have however passed away — the completion of the fint vohmie U accomplished, 
and uothiDg formidable remains to impede the progress of the second. In 
these pages will be found the lineage of nearly four hundred families^ enjoying 
m the aggregate probably a revenue of two millions sterling, and deriving, 
many of them, their territorial posseBsions from V\ illiam of Norman oy; 
invested however with no exclusive rank— designated by no ezdudve title 
— and bom to no exdnsive privilege. To this grade in her social system — 
her independent couiUiy gentlemen — ^Engiand is mamly indebted for her 
greatness abroad, and her prosperity at home. In this — and her free insti- 
tutions, she differs from every other country in Europe. 

It was the Author's intention to acknowledge his obligations to his principal 
correspondents individually ; but, on referring to the list, he finds it so extensive, 
thai it would be entirely out of place to present such a catalogue here. He 
begs of them, neverihckss, to be assured that he entertains the strongest 
sense of the great and valuable assistance he has received. Indeed he is con- 
vinced that, could he adhere to his original determination, he should by simply 
so doing propitiate a more than ordinary degree of favor. He cannot, how- 
ever, forbear recording the debt he owes to Sir David William Smith, barf, 
of Alnwick ; to William Henry Allan, esq. of DurNam ; to Michael Jones, 

uiyiii^ed by Google 


esq. ; to Ormerody Suitees, Hodgson, and Baker, the able hbtorians of the 
counties of Chester, Darham, Northumberland, and Northampton ; and to the 

lucal hiBtorians general ly, from whose laborious and useful works he hwm 
derived the most essential aid.

the following particulars of this fiuniiy wiUi 

the details given at page 104 : 

Thr Kdssells are of considerable an- 
tiquity in Ciimherlaud: — in many of the 
enrly entries in the church regittters of 
Millam (which the Rev. Henry Dixon, 
officiating minister, has recently with much 
care investigated) they are described as 
Russells de Diiddon Bridge, and d* Ar- 
nabie ; by an intermarriage with the ancient 

family of Taylor, they acquired the estat« 
of RowENLANDS, to which tbey removed 
between the years 1652 and 1657, and they 
continued to abide there until 1603, when 
in consequence of the demise issueless of 
the elder brother, the property passed to 
William Russell, esq. of Brancepeth Castle, 
whn having himself realised a very con- 
siderable fortune in the coun^ of Durham, 
alienated the acquisition, and it is now in 
the possession of R. Posdewaite, esq. of 
Braughton in Furness. 

Unfortunately the early registers are &a 
defeetire, that no very eontinnons pedigree 
can be made out before the year }fV}H, nnd 
the baptismal records commence with 16CK).

1608, was buried at Millam, and «. bj his

I son and snceessor, 

Matthfw Russelt., esq. of Rowenlands, 
b. I5th February, 1657-8, who had (with 
two daughters, Elizabeth and Bridget) Isro 
sons, viz.

Matthew, b. 2nd August, 1G86, who 
settled at Sunderland as a merchant 
in 17<X>, nnd upon his demise issue- 
less in 1700, devised half his fortune, 
which was very considerable, to his 
nephew William, late of Brancepeth 
Castle. In Sunderland churchyard 
a beautiful monument is erected to 
his memory.

caster, but sett at liberty hy the Scott*, 
This Anderton is a bloody papist, and one 
that, when Prince Rupert \v:ts at Hoiton.

Warrington, being Sir William Gerard's 
house, who is a subtile jesuited papist. This 
dissembling Scott trusts none so well in 
Lancashire for bis boates as the papists."

Mr. Colte represented the county of Norfolk for many yean in parliament. He.sae- 

ceeded to the eotatea at tb« decease of his father in 1776. 

The family of Coke, from which Air. Coke 
derives ibrougli female desscent. and which 
he now represents, is deduced by Camden, 

WlLUvM CoKF, of Doddington, in the 
county of Norfolk, nieiitinned in a deed, anno 
1206, who was father, by liis wife Felice, of 

Geoffrey Cokk, of DoUuiugtou, from 
whom descended 

Sir Edward Coke, the celebrated lawyer. 
This eminent per«onj til*' ^'m of Hobcrt Coke, 
esq. of Mileham, in the county of Norfolk, 
and Winifired, lus wife, daughter, and one of 

the heir«: of William Knightley, of Morgrave- 
Knigbtli y, in the same shire, was born at 
the seat of his father, and at ten years of 
age sent to die grammar-school at Norwich, 
whence he removed to Trinity College, Cam> 
briiltci', Nshcrt' h<^ stiidit d fur four year?, and 
was in some years afterwards chosn-u lii|,^h- 
steward of that university. From Cambridge 
he removed to Cliiford's-Inn, and, the year 
after, he was entered a student in tlie luner^ 
Temple, whence he was called to the bar, 
and being chosen reader in Lyon's-Inn, ac- 
quired SO much celebrity, that he very soon 



attained considerable pracli< (> Almnt this 
period he married Bridget, dau^Miter and co- 
heir of John Paston, esq. of Huntingfield 
HaU, in the connty of Stttbll^ third son of 
Sir WiUiam Pastoa, of Paston, with whom 
he acqnircd a fortimp of thirty tliousand 
pounds. An alliance, too, tliat brought him 
bouuurs and preferments as well as wraldl. 
The cities of Coratry and Norwich soon 
after elected him their recorder. The coanty 
of Norfolk returned him to parliament, and 
th.- House of Commons placed him in the 
sptaker b chair. In the 36«li of Elisabeth 
(iO&2), Mr. Coke was appointed Solicitor, 
aioAthenextyeSir Attorney gejieruJ In UiO.'J 
1u' rt-ceived the honour of knitjlith > <i iroiu 
KiuR James I. at Greenwich, and in three 
years afterwards was elerated to the hench 
as chief of the court of Common Pleas, from 
which he was advanced, in IfilJl, to the dig- 
nity of CliiF.t .IrsTU F or Evui.AND (being 
the last person who bore that title), and 
sworn of the privy council. His lofdship 
incurred suhsequently, however, the displea- 
sure of the court ; and while in dis^'^T H *", 
hearini; that a u(»ble lord had 2»olicitcd from 
the crown a portion of the lands belonging 
to die church at Norwich, which he had re- 
covered, and settled thereon, he cautioned 
the peer to delist, or that he would resume 
his gown and cap, and come into Westmin- 
ster HaU once again, to plead the eanse of 
the church. Between his paternal property, 
the great marriage portion he had with his 
wife, and his valuable offices and lucrative 
praetice at tlie bar. Sir Edward Coke realized 
au estate so ample, ttiateach of his Sons pos- 
sessed a fortune eqiwl to that of an elder 
brother. Camden, in his BHtanuta, say<«, 
that he wa» a person of admirable parts, 
than whom, as none ever applied himsel ' 
closer to the study of the law, so never did 
any one understand it better. Of whicli he 
fully convinced Eupland, by his ext ( llmt 
administration for oiany years together, 
whilst attorney-general, and by executing 
the office of Lord Chief Justice of the Com- 
mon Pleas with the greatest wisdom and pru- 
dence ; nor did he give less proof of his 
abilities in his excellent liepurig, and Com- 
mentaries upon our Law;», whereby he has 
highly obliged both his own age and poste- 
rity." His lordship d. 3rd September, 1088, 
at the advanced age of eighty-three. A no- 
ble monument was erected to his memory at 
Tittleshall church, Norfolk, with his effigies 
habited in judge's robes, lying at lull length.

DRAMATIST, b. in 1G72. 

Tliis distinguished person is 
spoken of in tems of admiration 
hy every EngUsh writer who has 

had occasion to mr I! tion his name. 
Steele madehiin tiie patron ofhis 
Miscellauy, and Pope inscribed 
to him the tianshition of the 
Iliad. Placed by curoumstancea 
hpyonil fbr pecuniary anxieties 
of an author's profession, lie ig 
•aid .to have affected contempt 
for the profesaion ilaelf. The 
anecdote of his telling Voltairr 
when he came t-* vi-^it ]<iiu, tliat 
he desired to be considered as a 
gentleman solely, and not in the 
light of an autlior, is one of the 
mortifyiiiir proofs lluitthe highest 
gifted uiind« nre nnt r\lM:>vs tlip 
Strongest. The iaUer years of 
Congrere's life were rendered 
miserable !> , irkness and in> 
firmity. Catarrlis in his eyes 
produced at length total blind- 
ness, and repented attacks of 
goat prematurely undermined his 


pigilized by Google 



conidtnlion. He mngfat relief 
from the waters at Bath, but the 

Bccident of being overturned in 
his carriage, left a permanent 
pain in his tide, WBd, probably, 
accelerated Ms deafh, which oc- 
curred in Januarj-, 1721), in the 
sixtieth yearof liis af^c. The re- 
mains of the poet were interred 
with great solemnity in West* 
minster Abbey, and Henrietta, 
Duchess of Marlborough, erected 
a monument to his memory. To 
thiii lady, who is said to ba^e en- 
tertaiDed a motC romantic regard 
for him, he bequeatliod tlie great 
bulk of his fortune. Congreve's 
occasional poems are so far be- 
low mediocrity, tliat we hare not 
deemed it necewary at all to al- 
lude to them. As a dramatist, 
his fame imperishablp. ar<l he 
atands, if not at the head, iu the 

very ftnt dass of writers of co- 
medy. Not so much, however, 
for his humorous and natural 
portraits, as for those of eccen- 
tricity. His wit, indeed, flashes 
upon ns almost to annoyance, 
and it is often difficult to distin- 
guish the false humour of his 
foo1« from the genuine sallies of 
his lively charactert. We shall 
oonelnde ^ese observatkina with 
Congreve's literary character, 
from the pen of Doitor John- 
son. " Congreve has merit of 
the highest kind; he is an 
original writer, who borrowed 
neither the mode! of his plot, 
nor the manner of his dialogue. 
He formed a peculiar idea of 
comic excellence, which he sup- 
posed to consist of gay rcmarki^ 
and unexpected answers, but tliat 
which he endeavoured he seldom 
failed of performing. His scenes 
exhibit not mvch of imagery or 

passion ; hi-^ ]<ersonag<'s arc a 
kind of intellectual gladiators — 
every sentence is to ward or 
strike ; but they are the work of 
a mind replete with images, and 
quick in conibi nation."

liam Pearce, esq. of Weasenhall, in Norfolk, and Holm Cot- 
tage, Richmond, Surrey, by whcmi be has an only daughter, 
Emma-Jane, 6. llth February, 1836. 

This gentleman is tlie seventeenth of his family who has 
inherited the ancient office of Cuampion. 

Tbie flunily ranks in point of nnttq^iity, 

nmlc and female, wtdl the most ancient in 
tlie kiiigdom. It derives the singular office 
of CHAMPION from the celebrated baronial 
house of Marhyun, or Marmyon, with the 
fendal manor of ScnivBtSBY, to whidi die 
championship is attached. 

At the time of th<' Norman Conquest, 
Robert de Maumyov, Lord of Fontoey, 
in Nonnaindy, having by grant of King Wil- 
liam the castle of Tamworth, in the county 
of Wanviek, uith the adjacent lands, ex- 
pelled the nuus from the abbey of Poles- 
Worth, to a place called Oldbury, about four 
miles distant. <*AAer which,'* (writes Sir 
William Dugdale,) " within tlic compass 
of a twelvemonth, as it is said, making a 
costly entertainment at Tamworth Castle, 
for some of his friends, amongst whom was 
Sir Walter de Somervile, Lord of Which- 
ever, in the county of Stafford, hU s^vo^n 
brother, it happened, that as he lay in his 
bed, St. Edith appeared to him in the habit 
of a veiled nun, with a crosier in her hand, 
and advertised him, tliat if he did not restore 
the abbe\ of Polesworth, whii h lay within 
'the territorii 6 belonging to his castle of Tam- 
worth, unto her successors, he should have 
an evil death, and go to hell. And, that he 
nii'^lit he the more sensible of this lu r adinu- 
nilion, slie smote him oo the »ide with the 
point of her cro&icr, and so vanished away. 
Moreover, that by this stroke being much 

wounded, he crycd out so loud, that his 

friends in the honse arose ; and, finding him 
extremely tormented with the pain of his 
wound, advised him to confess himself to a 
priest, and vow to restore the nuns to their 
former possessions. Furthennore, that hav- 
ing so done, his pain ceased ; and that in ac- 
complishment of his vow, accompanied by Sir 
W alter de Somervile, and the rest, he forth- 
with rode to Oldbury; and, cra\int^^ pardon 
of the nuns for the injury done, brought tlieni 
back to Polcswortli, desirini; that himM If, 
and his friend Sir Waiter de Somerwle, 
might be reputed their patrons, and have 
burial for themselTOS and their heirs in dm 
abbey — the Marmions in the chapter house 
— the Sonierviles in the cloystcr. However 
some circumstances in this story (continue 
Dugdale,) may seem fabulous, the substaaee 
of it is certainly true; for it expressly ap- 
peareth by the very words of his charter, 
that he gave to Oi«anna the prioress, yc/r the 
tstablithing of the religion of thote hum there ^ 
tk» ckmrek tf St. Editk, ofPoUiwortkj wUk 
it* appurtenaneeif to that the convent of Old- 
bwy should remain in that place ; and like- 
wise bestowed upon them the whole lordship 
of Polesworth : which grant King Stephen 
afterwards confirmed." The castle and ma- 
nor of Tamworth, in Warwickshire, and the 
manor of Scrivelsby, in the county of Lin- 
coln, were granted by the Conqueror to this

STRICKLAND, THOMAS, Oiq. of Sinrgh, in the county of Wc tmorland, b. 
ISdk Maich, 1790? «. in NoroBiber, 1824, MademoiseUo Ida do FinguorUn Bisahen^ 
g«D, jonogcot daughter of tiw Banm Finguerlta Biaakeiigen, aod has a Mm aod heir, 

Walter, b. at Paris, 6th September, 1886. 
Mr. StricUand inherited the esutes upon the demiee of his &ther. 

We shall begin the detail of this ancient 
family with an extract from Nicholson and 
Burn's History of the Autiquitie« of West- 
morland aud Cumberland. 

** In Helsington there haA been a family 
at Siaeff^ Hall, mach more ancient than 
anj of the names uf Bindlow or Bellingham, 
as lords of the manor. Which family came 
from Strickland, (or ratlicr Stirkland,) which 
W9B ^ paetare groood of the young cattle 
(called ftirka 4Mr steers) in the parish of Mor- 
Und, in this county, in whirh part they had 
con-iidrrable j^ossessious, ju* well its at Si- 
zergh iiiid other adjacent places, generally 
hotden under the barons of Kendal, It is 
■onewhat extraordinary-, that amon?:st the 
pnli^rr* of almost all tlie other ancient 
fau.iH< s ill lliis county we have met with no 
Kitisiac k>ry account of this family » but the 
of the late worthy owner of SU 

7.crgb Hall, Charlea Strickland, esq. we have 
been enabled to make out a regular and au- 
thentic deduction of this family from the 
dearest and most undeniable evidence, viz. 
the family writings." 

The first of the name of StrieUand met with 
isin the reign of Ktfi^loHi«,whenGiIbertFits 
Reinfred havinjx been compelled, on acconnt 
of his involvement with the rebellious harons, 
to give hostages for his future conduct, which 
hostages were the sons, daughters, and heirs 
of the principal uwn»v. lords holding under 
the barons of Kendal, amongst whom was 
the son and lieir of Sir Walter de Stirk- 
land. In the time of Hugh, bishop of Car- 
lisle, who came to the see towards the hv- 
ginnin^? of the reign of King IIf.miy III., 
tliis Sir Walter had license to l.eep a do- 
mestic chaplain in his family, within the 
Ijarish of Morland, so as it should be of no 
prejudice to the mother church. Sir W^alter 
Stirkland ^;ranfed ti)tlie chiinli of St. Mary's, 
York, and to the prior and monks of Weder- 
hal (which was a cell of the said abbey) four 
acres of land, in the territory of Stirkland 
moulter free. 

The son of this Sir Walter was 
Adam dr Stirm and, whose son, 
Sir Robert dl Siirri^vno, granted by 
deed, dated at his manor of Great Stirkland, 
on the eve of St. .lohn the Baptist, 23rd 
HevRY WiUi*mhis»on,and £lixabetb, 


dsoglitar of Sir Ralyb DeiiMXMtti, knt. on 
their marrinpc, his %vho!e manor of Great 
Strickland. This Sir Ralph Deincourt had 
an only son, Ralph, at whose decease, with- 
out issue, the inherituice devolved «pon the 
above Eluabeth StirUand. Sir Bobert wm 

i, by liis son. 

Sir William de Strikklanu, who, in the 
4th Edward I. was under-sheriff of the 
ooonty of Westmorland. He confirmed io 
the 90dl Edward I. the ^runt hkkIc by his 
great granlfith'r, to tlie abbot of St. Mary's, 
York, and the monks of Wedeshal, and wa$ 
9. at his decease by his ion, 

SiE Waltce db Stmoulakd, who ia the 
38th Edwaxd I. was with the king at the 
siege of Carlaverok, and in the 1st and 6tJi 
of Edward 11. was knight of the shire for 
Westmorlaad. In the 16th of the Mune 
reign, he was appointed sheriff of the conntj- 
of Westmorland. In two year;* afterwards 
he wa? again knight of the sanip sltirc. I.i 
the 9th of Edward III. Sir \V uiu;r obtaini d 
a grant to inelose his wood and demesne 
lands at Sizergh, and to make a park there^ 
and to hold the same 10 iodosed to him and 
his heirs for ever. 

This Sir WuUer, uu the marriage of his 
son, Thomas, with Cecilia, daughter of Ro- 
bert de Wells, settled the manor of Hack- 
fhorjt ;itm! hi;» laiids in Overwiiuler, 8cc. on 
the issue of that marriage, with rcmaiudcr 
to John and Ralph, his other two sons, lie 
appears to have had issue, 
Thomas, his successor. 
John, who was knight of the shire for 
\V ebtmorland 1st Edward III., and 
to whom Sir Walter granted 7th of the 
same reign, all his lands of Whenfell, 
with remamder to his son Thomas. 

In the I7th Edward III. Sir Walter again 
represented the oonnty in parliament, and 
Mras 9, upon his demise by his eldest son. 

Sir Thomas Strickland, who in the a'jth 
of Edward HI. obtained a patent empower-

The township of Marple, or as it was

George Bowdea, eaq. of Bowden, in the

afaawe is the hrst to the Cheshire petition, 
addreated to the two hooaes of parUMnent, 
6tb July, 1646, praying for the establish- 
inrn! of tho prrvbyterian religion. He acted 
as a magi:!trate under the parliamentarian 
gOTemmeut, and had a cowmkiaioit ill ^ 
army, helng major in Colonel Buken- 
fiold's regiment, under the appointmcTit of 
Lord Fairfax, and ho hnfl rdso a lieuten- 
ant-colonera commissiuu lu Colonel Ash- 
CoD'a regiment of foot. At a later period 
he was nominated to the command of the 
militia of MiK( losfiold Hundred, am! n 
at its head at the battle of Worcester, where 
he was wounded. In 160f2, Colonel Brad- 
ahawe waa one of fho oonrt martial which 
aat on the trial of the Earl of Derby and 
other royalists at Clivstor. In 1660, the 
survivors of the persuus who constituted 
that court, including Bradshawe, were iam- 
inoned to appear before the lorda^ oom- 
ttittee, appointed to consider of the privi- 
leges of the peerage of this kingdom, to 
whom the petition of the Countess of Derby 
had been referred. On diia occasion it 
appears that Colonel Henry Bradshawe was 
confined in the hoii;«e of Thoma'^ I.rc, a 
mrs!»rnf;er of tlie Mnrk rod, from ihe 17th 
July to the 14th August, lOGO, on which 
day Ae aaid Cohmel BnUbdiawv, Henry 
Bradahawe, of GrnyV im], and CrottlWCll 
Morerell, <>f Tideswell, in Derl)j shire, were 
boond in £500 to Alexander Thane, gentle- 
man uaher of the black rod, for the said 
aolonara appearance* There were at Afarple 
several forms for an apology ot answer of 
Colonel Bradsliawp to the rhnixe af:jain«it 
bi.n, the substance of all which amounted 
to (hia that being an officer mnder Ge- 
ar ral Cromwell, he was by him commanded 
to be present at a court martial atChesiter, 
for thp trill of tlie Earl of Derby, and that 
not know ing what danger he might incur if 
he should abaent Umaelf, waa smnotfrnes, 
diough not constantly, present at the ma- 
uauiti.: the said trial, but never subscribed 
any warrant for the earl's execatioa; that 

be knew not by what authority his lordship 
was removed fnm Chester, Vnt on the eon- 

trary laboured as much as he could to save 
the earl's life, and at the instance of the 
succeed iug Earl of Derby, he presented a 
petition to Colonel Macworfli, pvesideilC of 
the oonrt, fbr sparing^ the earl's life, and 
did eanestly press it, and should not liave 
been present at the last court, but that he 
had engaged himself to deliver that peti- 
tion : that being sent for by the late eari he 
did Immedlatdy attend him, and at his lord- 
ship's desire wrote to his brother, John 
Bradshawe, then president of the council of 
state, to use his utmost endeavours for 
sparing the earra Hfe ; that he never had 
any tiling which belonged to the said eari^ 
his countess, or any of theirs : that he waa 
a poor man, indebted, w ith a small estate, 
and a poor wife and eleven children, all 
unprovided, to maintain. WhereliNt, in- 
tending for the future so to demean himself 

as becomes an obedient subject, he humbly 
craved the benefit of liis majesty's most gra- 
cious pardon, and their lordship's favour- 
able construction of the premises, and thai 
his errors might be imputed to his mucli 
lamented ignorance and mistake." TTenry 
Bradsliawe obtained his release, as appears 
by a receipt for £40, dated 14lh August, 
1600, and signed Alexander Thane, bein^ 
in full of fees due to bim as visher of thn 
black rod, from Cob n 1 Henrie Brad?bawe 
during his confineiueut; and by another 
signed Cromwell Meverell, dated 23rd Fe- 
brnary, 1600, for the colonel's pardon soiog 
out, and thirty shillings paid to the master 
of the black rod as a simtn itv on the deli- 
very in of his bail book. Uu the Idth

of Kilkenny. This eminent person, so eele- 
brated in the eventful history of his native 
country, was boru in 1732, and educated 
at Triidty CiiUege, Dublin, aad at Christ 
Church, Oxinrd In the latter nnivofaity 
under the care of Mr. Markham, afterwanis 
archbishop of York. In 1759, Mr. Flood 
obtained a seat in the Irish House of Com- 
VOMM, bnt.dBring tfaat aearion took no part 
in its dabatee. In 1761, he waa re-elaolad, 
and be eamp almost inunediatelv afterwards 
leader of the opposition. The repeal of 
PoYNiNo's LAW* first engaged his great 
powero, and bo nltinMila^ aneoaeded in 
having the obnoxious clauses of that atalnta 
abrogated. His next patriotic effort wr?s 
the introduction of a bill for limitjug tho 
duration of parliaments, which had previ- 
ously subsisted In Ixeland, Ibr tbo life of tho 
king. This measure he advocated in vain 
in the admioistrations of the lords lieute-

triumphed, and tbe OcTBItNIAL BlU poiaad

importance achieved by the friends of free- 
dom in Ireland wiOm n reiy abort period 
the glorious and bloodless revolution of 
1782 followed. In 1775, Mr. Flood was 
sworn of the Privy Council in both king- 
doms, and constituted Vice Treasurer of 
Ireland. In 1791, tbe Spirit of Liberty, 
invip^orated from the opposite shores of the 
Atlantic, roused a feeling in Ireland which 
concession alone could assuage. England

If r. Flood wie lelnmed Ift die BrhMi Hdose

the dissolution of that parliament. He died in

should that history be ever written with im-

of this eminpnt man, and when it records

Amongst his contemporaries Hfnry 
Flood enjoyed the most splendid reputa- 
tion. ''Hetey" MJd Mr. Oerran, speaJiing 
of him in e eelebrated debate, "all the 
wisdom of the state is collected, exploring- 
your weakness and your stri nptli, (ictecting 
every ambuscade, and pointing to the hidden 
battery that wu brovigfat to beer upon die

of the treasurcship, Mr. Montgomery "called

ble gettdemen ^ir. Flood), the best, the 
most noble, die moot indefiidgftble, the most 
sincere, that had ever sacrificed private in- 
Vrost to the advantage of his country." Tn 
the debate that ensued, Mr. Flood rose and

political conduct, and concluding with the 
following charactf ristlr sentiment ; " My 
ambition has been when out of office not to 
be factious, and when in office not to be 

We cannot close this notice of Flood, 
without alluding at least, to the per<*on?)l 
dispute which occurred between him and 
hie eo-patriot, Henry Grattan. The dis- 
^awlon of Poyning's law first caused n mis- 
understanding between the!«e relrhritrd 
pcrsonsy and a subsequent debate upon^the 

repeal of the 6th GF.oRoe produced au 
altercation between them, unparalled witliia 
die walle of parliament for Titaperation, 
bittomees, and personality. In 1783, Mr. 

Gnittan olitainod n simple repeal of that de- 
claratory ;\ct,a course wluchMr.Flootl iiiain- 
taxued iu two very powerful speeches was no 
eecnrity against England's preferring at any 
future period a similar pretension founded 
upon the principle of the measure. Acting 
upon this opinion he procured a law renounc- 
ing the claim for ever. The dispute to which 
we alinde ooenned in 1783, end Mr.Flood, 
in the course of the debate, entered into a 
long and interesting narratiTe of his whole 
political life. 

The qnestion 9£ parttanentary reform, 
Mr. Flood adToealed Ibr tte flrst time in 

the Irish House of Commons, in 17H1, with 
his accustomed lorce and eloquence. In 
i7^M,he addressed a iirituh parliament upon 
die eame importsnt snbjeot; and Us speecth 
upon that occasion was published In 1881* 
with his re[dy to Mr. Windhrim. They are 
admiral oratorical efforts, and at the time of 
delivery calledfordi the highest eulogy from 
Mr. Pitt 

Had Henry Flood not been one of the 
most eminent statesmen and orators of the 
period in which he lived, his translations of 
Demosdienes, JBschines, and some of the 
Odes of Flndar, would have stamped him 
a mnn of genius, and insured him a place 
in the temple of fame. Mr. Flood's style 
of eloquence is described as of the veiy 
first order, replele widi koowledfe, ardent, 
vigorous, acute, and argumentadve j and 
it is stated, that while he hurried away his 
auditory by the force of his great reason- 
ing faculties, he delightsd every person of 
tasts and judgment, by a certain felieitj of 
diction, which added infinite grace and 
beauty to his delivery. He sometimes pros- 
trated his adversary by a single word, thus 
resembling die grset Lord Chatham, wboee 
attributes as an orator and statsswsn he held 
in the highest veneration.

master : — for when the Marquess of 
Exeter, and the Ladu Elizabeth, 
(afterwards Queen of England, of 
Gloriou'! Memory), were committed 
to the Tower in ilueen Mary's days, 
npoQ an aocneatiott of being privy* to 
Wyat's conspiracy, Mr. Edmund Tre- 
mayne was set on the rack, thereby 
to extort from him a confbeeion of 
their gruilt (prisoners were oft exa- 
mined about her, and some were put 
to tiie rack to try if they could be 
brought to accuse that lady) ; wherein 
approving their innocency and his 
own fidelity, witli invincible resolu« 
tion,liewas upon the Lady Biaabetfi's 
advancement to the throne made one 
of the clerks of her Majesty s most 
honorable privy council. He had

be was obliged from his seal for the 
reformation to seek an asylum in

RiHiden, in his survey of Devon, re- 
lates tlie following singular facts re- 
garding them. Nicholas and An- 
drew Tremayne were twins and 
younger sons of Thomas Tremayne, 
esq. of Oallacumbe, in this county; 
they were so like in all their linea- 
ments, 80 equal in statures, so co- 
lotired in hair, and of such resem- 
blance in far*' mi l gesture, that they 
could not be known the one from the 
other; no notbr dieir paienla, bre* 
thren, or sisters, but privately by some 
secret mark, or openly by wearing 
some soTMml cokmred ribond or the 
like : which in sport, they would 
sometimes change to make trial of 
their friends' judgments, which would 
often occasion many mirthfiil mis- 
takes. Yet Komewbnt more strange 
it was, tliat ihev agreed in mmd and 

tJhe6m as much as in body ; forwhnt 
one loved, the other desired ; so on 
the contrary, the loathing of the one 
wns the dislike of the other. Yea I 
•uch a consideration of inbred power 
and sympathy was in their natures, 
that if NMhobM wns sick and inrieved, 
Andrew felt the liko pain, though 
they were far distant and remote frwm 
each other ; this too wi^ont any in- 
telligence given unto either i>arty.

Tisit ia the course of Iml summer to Lulworth 
Castlo, the seat of Mr. Weld. At eig^t o'clock, 
of a pleasant morning in the beginning of July, I 
left Dorchester, in company with two other gen- 
tlemen, one of wliom had previously visited the 
monastezy. and Idndly undenook the office of 
gnide. After a ride of ahoat eleven miles orer 
downs, covered with flocks of sheep, we declined 
on the right into a small ralley, overhung with 
woods. The view at the extremity of this TsUey 
is heautifully terminated by the Enplish Chiiimef, 
and in its centre stands Ltilw-obtii Castlk, an 
antique Gothic ed>€oe, efensiMiaf of ftiir looad

strangers are permitted to see the inside of this 
1 i ill', we nlighftni at the principul entrance, on 
each side of which are two Latin inacriptinns ; 
the one eanmMmorstinf the extended toleration 
pmnted to the Roman catholics in 17B(). the other 
r<>cording a visit from his majesty King Geobgs 
III. with which Mr. Weld wm honooied. A fter 
gratifying ourselves by an inspection of the f 'i 
fioe, we proceeded throngh the fields for al>oul n 
mile, before we reached the monastery. Thia 
building is constructed of rery rude materials, 
and in a very rude manner. The grounds al- 
fnclied an' about one hundred acres, which are 
cultivated b;^ the monks, with the assistance of a 
carter and Ins boy. The eomnranity rise at one 
o'clock in tlie morning, winter and 'summrr ; tlie 
choir brothers then begin their devotions, and

they return to prayers for half an hour, and are 
then summoned to their fru-jal meal. After this

God, find adjourn fo the chapter room, where tliey

nearly over, when they once more go to prayers,

The third son, 

John Senhoiisr, succeeded his dd* r bro- 
ther Peter, in his half moiety of the manor 
of Ellenborongh, and inherited from Itis 
moth(>r her moiety of the same. He had 
saved that lady's life, at the imminent risk 
of his own, from the certainty of being 
drowned in the river Derwent. He inhe- 
rited, likewise, his aunt Bardsev's half 
moiety, and thus became eventually sole 
proprietor of Alneburgh, or Ellenborongh,

1. PKTea, his successor. 

2. SiiTioii, who was murdered near Do- 
venby, by Skelton, of Armathwaitbe. 
Skelton and himself are said to hare 
paid their addresses to the same lady, 
who gave the preference to Simon, 
and thereby so enraged Skelton, as to 
excite him to so baM an act of un- 
merited vengeance. 

3. Richard, in holy orders, D.D. fel-

The surname of Ci TRK or Clark, a com- 
moa one throughout Europe, is in Scotland 
4>ne of neat nntiquity ; and was probably 
•Miimed from some office bearing the de- 
sip^ation. It is a matter of notorifty, that 
.there were mauy free barons and men of 
great posseasioiui and power of the bane 
of Clark, in very early tiroes. Sir James 
Dairy tuple cites a charter (prior to the year 
1180) of King William of a donation to the 

abbtiry of Holyrood House, and aiiiori'^ the 
vrittie^es ^who are all men of rank) are 
IJu^o Clertent re^it ; Hugo Clerufm etmeei~ 
iarii ; Johannes Clericus, &e. See. In 1296, 
Richardus Clerk submitted to Edward I. 
and in the same year Banedkt Clerk, a man 
of rank and figure, was earned prisoner to 
London for refusing to swear allegiance to 
the English monarch ; and Mariota, his lady, 
obtained a safe conduct to visit him in Eng- 
land. At the battle of Durham, William 
Clerk was taken prisoner, and remained in 
captirity nntil released in 1907, with his 
8ovLTrip;ri Damd TT. Thv clan of Chattan, 
and some of the best Highland families, 
dafm to be descended from ttie Clbriu; 
and from charters under the great seal, it 
appears that various families of this surname 
have held extensive possessions from a very 
remote era. The house we are about to

The surname of Smith is of great antiquity 
in Scotland, ami luis at different time* been 
written Smyt, Smytmk, and Smith. The 
houM of Smith, traditionally, owes its 
origin to the Clan Chatan, being descended, 
it is asserted, from Neil Cromb, third son 
of Murdoch, of tfiat clan, who flonrfohed In 
tlip tinif of Wiu.IAM the J.ion. The family, 
of which we are about to treat, derives from 

Thomas Smith, who, having applied his 

talents (ii thr study of idiysic, att^nued high 
eminence in the medical profession, and 
was appointed apoAecary to KirngSMOM III. 
as appears by a charter bearing date 99th 
January, 1477. He was father of 

Patrick Smith, of Braco, in the county of 
Perth, who lived temp. Jambs IV. and was «« 
by bis son, 

William Smith, of Brace, who, with the 
special consent of King Jambs V. had a

Murray, perpetual commendator of Scoon.
